After record temps today, cold front tomorrow

We out here breaking high temperature records in November with temperatures in the 80s! As you can see from the Tweet below from the Weather Prediction Center, there were many locations across the Midwest and Northeast that broke records for high temperatures today. Muncie was one of those locations, for the second consecutive day. We reached a high of 81°F today and 83°F yesterday, both good enough for records.

This is all going to change drastically tomorrow. First of all, let’s talk about tonight. Overnight, we will see mild temperatures continuing, as the low only reaches into the low 60s with mostly clear skies.
